The first verb, first act, the first moment recorded in the centuries old text we hold so dear was one of creation. The practice of manifesting something from what was once nothing kick started this whole thing.
God wrote this text, so he made the choice to record creation first. This does not cancel out all other acts to follow, but it does position creation as first, primary, coming before all others.
I believe this gives us a peek into God’s insides…His inner voice…if he has one. We see what consumes his mind and urges His inspiration.
When faced with the endless void of pre-universe, He decided to paint the sky at sunset. He chose to compose the bird’s morning song. He chose to fashion the canyons and design the depths of the ocean floor. When allowed to do all or nothing, he chose to create.
He chose the be a creative…and so have we.
In doing so, I believe we are like our Father and we get to express that sliver of Him every time we put pen to paper, brush to canvas, lyrics to melody, chisel to stone, or needle to fabric.
When we do our art, we are tapping into the same river of inspiration that dreamed up the Aurora borealis, the Himalayan mountains, and the swirling churn of Niagara Falls.
Creativity is in our blood.
So, what now?
Now, we must grab ahold of our creative flow through spirit-led art. Whether this be your calling, your purpose, your job, or your hobby, let it be your link. A hardwire to the Almighty.
God is the eternal creator and, sometimes, he lets us hold his hands, place our feet on His, and join in on the dance. So, let’s dance.
The Creator of the universe wants you to dance.
The beginning and the end wants you to dance.
Let go, and dance.
